Dan was from Libertyville, IL. He was a Sgt in the army. He was in as a Cavalry Scout with the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment from 2003-2009. He deployed to Iraq from Feb 2005 – Feb 2006. He was medically retired in 2009. He was a fantastic welder and an avid gun builder and collector. He tried so hard to get through his illness. Dan took my son in like he was his own. We actually have a Facebook page from when he was missing (December 1, 2014; recovered March 13, 2015).
